Bad Hamlet
Bad Hamlet is a roulette style drinking-game reading of, well, the "bad" quarto of Hamlet. Presented this summer in the Headlong Performance Institute Garden by Joseph Ahmed & Lesley Berkowitz in association with The Greenfield Collective,  Bad Hamlet is as much a celebration of the cacophonous genius of Shakespeare, as it is a ridiculous romp through a play scholars like to pretend doesn't exist.
There will be finger puppets.
There will be murderous spoons.
There will be booze.
There will be "power-ups"*
There will be blood**.
July 1, 2, 8, & 9 @ 8 pm.
Headlong Performance Institute
1170 S. Broad St
$10 Tickets sold at door
$3 beer & $4 wine
**actor power-ups are challenges (like an outlandish accent or physical choice) assigned by the audience to the actors. Ever wanted to hear "to be or not to be" in a Scottish accent? Now's your chance.
